Principles Of Engineering Course Description
Principles Of Engineering (POE) is a high school-level survey course of engineering. The course exposes students to some of the major concepts that they will encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Students have an opportunity to investigate engineering and high tech career POE gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project-, and problem-based (APPB) learning. Used in combination with a teaming approach, APPB learning challenges students to continually hone their interpersonal skills, creative abilities, and problem solving skills based upon engineering concepts. It also allows students to develop strategies to enable and direct their own learning, which is the ultimate goal of education.

The course of study includes:
  • Mechanisms
  • Energy Sources
  • Energy Applications
  • Machine Control
  • Fluid Power
  • Statics
  • Material Properties
  • Material Testing
  • Statistics
  • Kinematics
